I might have posted this before but I'm not sure.
Mixing trick:
When you have two tracks competing in a frequency range you have to use complimentary EQ (ex. boost 1K in the vocals and cut 1K in the synth) This will make the vocals pop out and keep the synth or whatever from hiding. This is good and all but say the thing your synth is competing with (vocals in this example) stops playing for a bit, now your synth is all by itself and sounds kinda shitty, and you wanna boost 1K back up. Drawing in automation curved is time consuming and not really practical for short pauses between words, etc.

What I do (this works especially well in FL studio with the peak controller) is rig up a ducker for that specific frequency band in your EQ. Now every time your vocals trip the peak controller, your synth gets cut down in the 1K range and you don't have to turn the whole synth down, just the part that's clashing. You can also do this with panning, like during vocals, everything gets scooped off to the sides where it won't clash with the center channel.

Hey guys,

You seem pretty knowledgeable on this stuff, so I was wondering if you could help me with one thing. I'm trying to find a certain sample CD with those 'bmore' drum kits and vocals that come up in a lot of tunes. Mainly Diplo and that posse use them.

Another example of what I'm talking about is in beginning of Alter Ego - fuckingham palace (modeselektor's swiaiaa remix)

I hope you guys know where I can find them, I've been looking for a while.

-Thanks.

Getting The Justice Bass Style Kinda

How to play a funk groove.

Effectrix an effect sequencer, you can try others, but this one looks like the best one out there.

Alternative from Slap bass, and Finger bass. You might need to find a plugin that has those sounds. That's all I got.

can someone please help me out with the mda talkbox vst on ableton?

im not really experienced with any VSTs at all but i found SOME help from here : https://www.ableton.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=288282&sid=a6f714774432b4f2906a756905cfdfb4

on the site the second post gives a few steps

ive been following all these steps and have been pretty successful except for the fourth step which is :

"4. send the carrier to the vocoder

-in the i : o routing* set the simpler to send "audio to:" talkbox, and then in the next box down (underneath "audio to:") select "talkbox: carrier". the simpler will now send audio to the vocoder's carrier input.

*i : o routing = the top button of the black buttons at the bottom right of session view"

the problem is the "audio to" box doesnt say talkbox and thus cant connect the vocals to the output through the midi

most hoovers you hear are played way up on the high octaves, just put a wee bit of distortion on it and bring it down about 2 octaves, actually wait, im not really sure, havent done much experimenting with that sound but typically since its 3 oscs 3 octaves apart id say you shouldnt play it too low or the sound might be muddy


im quite new at producing, i was wondering if you could go into alittle bit more detail on how i should do it.

nd also could someone tell me how i can get the synth sound in the mstrkrft green light remix

Hey! welcome
The Green Light synth isn't too hard to recreate. Depending on what program you're using things might be a bit different but it's basically the same in all synthesizers. I'm assuming since you're new at producing you're probably using FL studio? Reason maybe? Either way like I said the principle is the same.
The main synth line sounds to me like a few saw tooth waves, a bit or distortion, and some chorus, or maybe a flanger...
In Fl Studio bust out a 3osc or your soft synth of choice and set all three oscillators to saw wave. One of them might be a square wave, I can't really tell. Also it sounds to me like Jesse's using his synth trick on this one where he splits the track into three parts, using a low pass filter on one version of it and a high pass on the other two. He probably added the chorus to the high ones and also spread them out in the stereo field. That way the low frequencies of the sound don't get messed up with effects.
If anyone notices I forgot something, feel free to hop in

PS Thanks for posting your question in the right spot. It's about time we got someone new who has enough sense to post comments in the appropriate discussion.

Hey no problem. Logic huh? So you're starting out on the good stuff already. I've somehow never actually used massive or predator... anyways I'm gonna go pick them up in a minute, cause they're pretty sweet synths.
I'm sure you can use one of them to get the Green Light sound. It's really not that complicated. And as for the track effects and stuff, it should all be in the manual of logic. A google search would get you some instructions on splitting the synth into low and high parts through filters. And I think Taylor uses logic so if you're having any problems, him or someone else here should be able to help you out

i saw this on the remix website and was wondering if anyone can explain to me what xavier means by

“Genesis.” That song is just made of hundreds of small samples, from Slipknot to Queen. We first recorded all the parts with MIDI synths and then replaced every note with really short samples. "

Heres the whole thing.


Do you prefer the more uplifting songs to the darker songs in general?

GA: To be honest, I love them all because both the romantic tracks and the more violent ones are just about instant emotion.

XdR: It just depends on the moment we're listening to it. When we finished the album, we obviously did prefer the last ones we did. But now I don't have a specific one I love more than the others. Maybe “Genesis.” That song is just made of hundreds of small samples, from Slipknot to Queen. We first recorded all the parts with MIDI synths and then replaced every note with really short samples.
